the front of my belly hurts

There is one spot that is super painful. It is not round ligament pain...feels like I may have pulled a muscle?!?!?! Also I have REALLY popped the last few days. I feel very pregnant now. I am still super tired, which is very different for me. Usually by now I feel very energetic. It is just not happening. Overall I feel better. I changed my prenatal and that seems to have really made me feel less like I am dying. I think the tummy trouble was draining me.

It sounds like baby had a growth spurt and it's sucking out all of your energy. I had to change my prenatal too and that made a big difference. Were you lifting anything heavy that would have caused you to maybe pull a muscle?

MINE TOO oh my goodness. I am having all sorts of aches and pains, some internal and some feel more on the surface, like muscle pain. I have been having a lot of pain the front, right around (and in) my belly button. Is that where yours is? I'm asking my midwife about it tomorrow.

I've also popped insanely big now. I am in a constant state of shock when I see myself in a mirror! :o

I have been tired/exhausted and experiencing lots of back pain with this one since day one. Curious about the prenatal change. What was the change?? Maybe that would help me too...

She said it's all related to the stretching of muscles to accommodate everything...perfectly normal, but certainly a discomfort! Mine seems particularly aggravated by walking too much, and she agreed that any extra strain can definitely cause flare ups. Relaxing with warm tea was her suggestion, and also calcium magnesium in liquid form, which can help muscle discomfort too!

I know how that feels. I've been gone for a week on vacation and I swear I feel like I look eight months pregnant... like baby grew a foot in a week! Even everyone at work noticed a huge difference in my belly (not to mention I've gained 12 lbs since my last dr appt!!)... the belly pain will pass though (at least that's what we have to tell ourselves lol!)!
